Re: Best 12ax7 to use inV1 in an orange amp ?

I use the new Mullard 12AX7s in my AD50 and EHXs in my AD15. I experimented a few times with PMs, Tungsols, JJs and the EHXs in the AD50 and the Mullards in the AD15... but this is where I repeatedly settle. And these days I’m running the MV as loud as I can and the Gain as low as I can. With the AD...

Re: AD15 with Celestion Alnico Blue

Hi steamboat and thanks for the response. Yeah I’ve been getting on better with my AD15 than my AD50 of late hence trying to squeeze a bit more juice out if this sweet little Orange. :D I used it at band practice yesterday and it was sounding great as is so I’m sitting on the fence about changing th...

Re: sovtek rectifier issue

I use a Sovtek in my AD15 and have never had issues. This is highly unlikely with a GZ34, but I once had a 12AX7 in my AD50 do a similar thing until I realised one of the pins was slightly misaligned and when I was installing it I was sliding the pin between the socket and the connector rather than ...

Re: Tone Stack Bypass in AD15

I’m updating my own thread because I just stumbled on this very old thread about the AD15’s master volume where Ade E himself chips in about both the thread topic but also the question of modding an AD15/30 for tone stack bypass. https://forum.orangeamps.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7459&sid=93ef1345ae03...

Re: AD15 with Celestion Alnico Blue

A further question. If I do get a Celestion Blue, is there any discernible difference between an 8ohm and 16ohm version? The AD15 has both an 8 & 16ohm speaker out. The stock V30 is 16 and naturally plugs into the 16. An 8ohm Blue could go into the (obviously not at the same time). Do the ohms reall...

Re: EL84 users - Public Service Announcement

Very impressive valves. I concur that in handling them they feel heavier and sturdier than my EHXs and JJs. Sound wise they don’t disappoint. I’m not the best at describing tones, but doing a swap between my EHXs and these, to my ear in my AD15 these sound fuller, with more midrange and with a nice ...

Re: Compliment/contrast my AD15 (Fender, Vox, Supro?)

Hi Ade, I'm a long time owner of an AD15 and recently had it serviced and valves replaced, with my tech recomending a lower/mid gain JJ pre-amp tube in the 1st stage to get some more headroom and a little more definition. Sounds great when you keep pre-amp gain low and crank master for 'cleans', th...

Re: AD15 with Celestion Alnico Blue

Thanks fiveightandten. I’ve been able to pull some measurements off the net and the Blue seems to be 30mm deeper than than the V30. Furthermore, I actually found an old ad on Reverb for an AD15 that had a Blue installed. I’ll try and link the pic: https://reverb.com/ca/item/417955-orange-ad15-12#&gi...

AD15 with Celestion Alnico Blue

I’m thinking of replacing the stock Vintage 30 in my AD15 with a Celestion Alnico Blue. Anyone had experience with this? The Vintage 30s have been the choice for modern Orange where as Vox seem to shine with Greenbacks or (my preference) Alnico Blues. Interested to hear if anyone has tried Alnico Bl...

Re: STRINGS! what do you use?

Actually now you mention it, the only guitar I still have 11-49s on is my Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster. I use D'addario NYXL1149s on it but not because of corrosive sweat, but because with other brands I kept breaking strings at the trem. Someone on another forum recommended them as good with offsets ...

Re: STRINGS! what do you use?

Years playing D’Addario 11-49s. Ernie Ball 10-46s for the last year or two.
